A man was arrested today as part of the investigation into the tragic murder of Keane Mulready-Woods.

The man in his forties was detained at the Drogheda Garda Station under the provisions of Section 50 of the Criminal Justice Act of 2007.

He can be held for up to seven days.

Mulready-Woods (17), from Drogehda, Co Louth, was first reported missing in January of this year.

His body was then found dismembered in Dublin one week after his disappearance.

His remains had been hacked up with an axe and then the remains were placed in separate bags.

One bag with his limbs was found in Darndale, while his head, hands and other body parts were discovered a day later in a burnt-out car in Drumcondra. His torso has yet to be found.

Earlier this year, one of the suspects in Mr Mulready Woods murder, Robbie Lawlor, was shot dead in Belfast.

Lawlor was a suspect in several gangland killings and shootings in North Dublin.

A garda spokesman said: "A man in his 40s has been arrested this morning, Tuesday 8th December 2020, as part of the investigation into the murder of Keane Mulready Woods.

"He is currently being detained under the provisions of Section 50 of the Criminal Justice Act 2007 at Drogheda Garda station. He can be held for up to 7 days."
